I wanted to share the project that has been taking up nearly all my sewing time these last few weeks.

I finished the binding last night while watching Apocalypto on SBS. It worked well, as I could concetrate on my stitching during the parts of the film that were too distressing to watch, and it seemed to go on for hours, which was how long I needed to slowly hand sew the binding.

The kids didn’t notice the binding as they raced to get their chocolate coins out of pocket number 6 this morning. But I felt so good to have it finished I celebrated by sewing a dress AND an apron. And boy did I love that. Because I might continue to torment myself by sewing quilts (and quilt like objects), but my true love is sewing clothes :)
